So you were a badass in high school and wanted to horrify your parents by getting that super crazy tattoo, or you used to be super into something (someone!?) so decided to permanently etch it into your skin so it would always be top of mind. Unfortunately, twenty years later the sanskrit word for “believe” is no longer something that’s resonating for you. Hey – we love tattoos, but we get that sometimes ink regret is a real thing. With PicoWay tattoo removal we can rid you of your tattoo or, create some new space for a new tattoo to live. It’s totally up to you.
Unlike traditional tattoo laser removal treatments, PicoWay uses picosecond technology for tattoo removal. A picosecond is a super-fast trillionth of a second. Picoway Tattoo Removal targets your tattoo ink through the delivery of energy to the area in extremely short pulses (picoseconds). These pulses break apart the tattoo into tiny particles, which can then be naturally eliminated from the body.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
If you’re reading this you may be feeling slightly panicked. From your research, you likely found that tattoos are actually pretty difficult to remove. PicoWay has really changed that, though. It’s a super sophisticated, expensive device, which is why it’s not available for just any clinic looking to conduct tattoo removal.
The removal of a tattoo is dependent on a lot of factors such as its depth, its age, its ink particle size, its colour, as well as the skin tone it was tattooed on, so you need a technology that encompasses all of these elements.
With its advanced technology, PicoWay can target a variety of tattoo colours and can be used with any skin tone. In addition, because it emits less heat energy than traditional laser tattoo removal technologies, it allows for your tattoo to be removed more safely and effectively.
This is largely dependent on the type of tattoo that you have, but the answers is: probably. We invite you to come in for a complimentary consultation with one of our experienced providers. They will be able to assess your tattoo and give you the approximate amount of treatments it will take to remove it.
Following treatment, there may be some redness and temporary discolouration or lightening of the area that was treated. The skin will return to its original skin tone in the weeks following your tattoo removal treatment.
This is one of our medical aestheticians' favourite treatments to perform. It's really amazing to see a tattoo disappear over a few sessions. And disappear they do. Check out our before and after photos below. We have more in clinic that we can show you when you come for your complimentary consultation.
